Sample from large bottle at beer club. Some decent hops out front, but no feeling of "gotta have another".

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Clear lighter copper, smaller lasting creamy white head. Mild aroma of caramel malt and rye. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malt with some spicy rye and lightly bitter earthy hop. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, lightly hopped. Not that exciting or complex, but a nice enough sessional ale. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors. Pours a medium, frothy white head atop a copper coloured body. Nose is very off - acetone, cantaloup and watercress. Flavour is robust, good resiny hop front, some apples and bitter hop finish. Pretty good considering the lower ABV of 5.2%.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. The "Cascadian" signifies the PNW hop style used -- this is not a cross between a Cascadian Brown and Rye, which I figured (and was probably the only one). The pour gave a huge amount of bubbles on the side of the glass, same as their Vienna I had the other day. I figure it’s hitches in the bottling process for a start-up, can’t blame them. Hazy ruby amber.
The aroma is grainy with alcohol notes. Taste is of a classic PNW amber ale with good balance but not an "explosion in your mouth". The stand-out here is, of course, the rye, which gives a fantastic smooth mouthfeel I just can’t praise enough. Bitterness comes through in the finish more than I’d expect from 38 IBUs. This is quite good, and I think it will prove popular in the province. Cheers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Malone’s Urban Drinkery, Vancouver
Hazy amber color, with creamy head. Mild aroma of rye, nice. Smooth mouthfeel, dry but not too much; quite good flavor of malt, cereals, rye, cookies; it has a light roastiness that may call for the Cascadian name; the hopping is balanced, providing some fruity quality.
It has some elegance; pleasant.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Certainly palatable, but not quite the complexity I might have expected. Perhaps I’ll give it a shot again and re-rate. I did detect the rye, but it’s subtle. More of a generic pale ale, but decent session beer I think.
